Sharing our love for authors, and the stories they are inspired to tell.

‘Dry Bones That Dream’ by Peter Robinson

So as not to show any spoilers I have not included a synopsis, however, you can find out more about the story by simply clicking on the cover image.

If you don’t really want to read any major spoilers, then you can tease yourself a little more, by reading the first few lines of the story … here
